While FreightorGator works with the most reliable LTL carriers, it’s still important for shippers to ensure their freight is on-time and accounted for throughout the transit process. While it’s possible to track your shipments directly with your carrier, there might be a fee attached to said tracking process. FreightorGator offers a simple and cost-free tracking solution for your LTL freight.

Tracking Your LTL Shipments With FreightorGator
After you’ve booked through FreightorGator, the carrier will provide an estimate as to how long it will take to ship and deliver your freight. Each freight carrier has different pick-up and delivery policies, so it’s important to review these with your carrier prior to shipment. Once picked up, however, you’ll need to track the shipment to ensure the freight is on-time with the estimated delivery date.
Once your LTL freight has been picked up and the shipping process has begun, you’ll want to keep a close eye on your freight throughout its transit. There are two ways you can track your shipment with FreightorGator. Your Bill of Lading (BOL) or your PRO Number(s) can both be used to get tracking updates through FreightorGator’s tracking system, which can be found here.
Bill of Lading
The bill of lading will be issued by the carrier once your freight has been loaded onto the truck. The BOL serves as a contract between the shipper and the carrier, a receipt for the carrier’s goods, and can be used to help track your shipments via FreightorGator.
Similar to parcel tracking numbers, PRO numbers are another way to track your shipment. Carriers assign a PRO number to each respective LTL shipment, so the goods can be tracked as they pass through transfer centers. Shippers dealing with multiple PRO numbers in a single shipment generally receive one PRO number to make tracking the entire shipment simpler.
